Kanata Ecumenical Good Friday Walk of the Cross: After a three-year pause due to COVID, the annual Kanata Ecumenical Good Friday Walk of the Cross will take place this year on Good Friday, April 7th.

Trinity Presbyterian Church in Kanata (1817 Richardson Side Road) will host the Walk of the Cross. This edition of The Walk will look a bit different in that it will take place in the large parking lot of Trinity Presbyterian Church. The Walk will include carrying the same cross that has been used since 1985. There will be stops for 5 Scripture passage readings and communal prayer as in previous years. Start time for this event is 1:00 pm. For more information, call Mark Buccino at 613-327-6565. [March 2023]


Training session for the Church’s updated website: As part of the effort to update Christ Risen Lutheran Church’s website, Alex Steinke, Director of Communications for Lutheran Church-Canada, lead an online training session for members of the congregation on February 27th, 2023 at 7:00 pm.

The students learnt how to build and maintain a website using the content management system WordPress. The aim of Council is to have as many people as possible who can contribute content to this website in order to make it a valuable source of information about all the activities going on at Christ Risen.

Retirement of Pastor Groh: After 45 years of service to the Lutheran Church in Argentina, Canada, the United States, and elsewhere, Pastor Jorge Groh has retired at the end of 2022. For the past six years, he and his wife, Olga, faithfully served the congregation of Christ Risen Lutheran Church in Kanata. The congregation offers their many thanks for their service and God's blessings in their retirement.

Christ Risen now enters into a period with a pastoral vacancy. Thankfully, Pastor Wayne Geick will serve the congregation as Vacancy Pastor until such time as a new pastor accepts the call to serve. [January 2023]
